my best friends are gone
fallen way beyond
and they left me here with no one by my side
how can i get by
with no one to try
and pick me back up when i fall down?
my support has left
me and i'm bereft
of the things i need to help me make it on through
now i can't undo
with no cheering through
that could make me feel like i don't suck

ooh-woah-oh-woah
ooh-woah-oh-woah
it was a brightening day
ooh-woah-oh-woah
ooh-woah-oh-woah
it was a brightening day

my whole scene has split
they don't give a spit
about anybody else all night but themselves
so we'll burn in hell
and think that it's swell
just as long as we get our own rooms

so we'll burn in hell
and think that it's swell
just as long as we get our own rooms

    actually, the lyrics are:
    "Now what can I do
    With no cheering crew
    There to make me feel like I don't suck"

    General CommentRivers basically says his friends aren't there for his best interests. As far as he is concerned, just there for nothing. They don't give a damn.
